‘Law & Order’ Meloni Opens Up About Stabler-Benson Relationship
Over the years, Hargitay and Meloni have had quite a relationship on and off the screen. Fans love the two together. Stabler and Benson have had those tensions and feelings for quite some time and it has been both deliberate from writers, and sometimes projected by fans.
Recently, Meloni talked about the potential of a relationship on TV between Stabler and Benson.
“In the future, I don’t not see it,” Meloni said to People. “That might be very satisfying for a lot of people, I’ll leave it at that.”
“I just think that it really has to be a natural aspect of ‘Elliot’s back and in town,’” the Law & Order actor continued. “And especially how he left and their radio silence over all these years. You have to answer these questions and figure out how they inhabit the same space.”
So, Law & Order fans, are we ready yet?
